Phila|Terra is a new concept with designs inspired by charity


John Lin is the founder of Colony, a multidisciplinary company that currently operates as a cooperative gallery, design studio and strategy firm. This month, she unveiled the brand’s fourth act, Phila|Terra, a new concept that will design collections inspired by the charitable causes they support. Phila|Terra is the first edition of the Phila series, a limited edition of 100 mouth-blown vases designed by Lin and made by a glass artist Deborah Czeresko.

With proceeds going to the Environmental Defense Fund and Rainforest Foundation US, the vibrant vases seem to echo the colors of the habitats they will help. Czeresko, who only received size, shape and color specifications from Lin, was able to maximize production efficiency and minimize material waste. Each vase is beautiful on its own but, like a collective effort of a community charged with doing good, the collection is most brilliant as a group.
